elementary where that smash space took place. good morning. >> reporter: hey, good morning, guys. yeah, obviously some people were disturbed by this. that's how it came to the attention of local media, but a lot of people we talked to say they really don't see what the big deal is. so, back on march eighth there was a rocking chair at the school that was broken beyond repair they say and so the principal brought it over here to a loading dock and trash disposal area and told people they could basically take a swing at it. it was a way from the school and out of the sight of students but after someone posted about it on list serve that's when the controversy began. in an apologetic letter top parents the principal explained they got the idea after reading business articles about companies providing smash rooms as a way for employees to release stress. the trend has been popularized on social media. looking at these youtube videos you can see how it might be distressing to imagine teachers with suppressed anger acting out in a way like this. these are som
6:12 am
rooms or so-called smash rooms on youtube, but parents we talked to said it was nothing like this and that the whole thing has been overblown. >> i think that some people have been a little too sensitive to the thing, that the fact of the matter is that our kids come down there to an amazing principal, to an amazing staff who care and love for them every day and no one has ever been worried to send their kids here. >> reporter: now, principal barbara liess admitted this probably wasn't the most well thought out idea saying there was a lapse in judgment, she recognizes the concerns, that the staff is committed to modeling for students and one another appropriate and productive ways for that handling staff. she recognizes it is downed what we teach students has noplace in a school. i'm told just one person took advantage of that stress room or smash room basically taking a baseball bat at the rocking chair.
6:13 am
public schools said they are investigating the matter. they do take incidents like this seriously and also wanted to let people know that the school system does have many programs to allow teachers and staff to find ways to deal productively with their stress. live in kensington, i'm melanie alnwick, fox5 local news. >> melanie thank you. united airlines not wasting any time reaching a settlement with that passenger who was violently dragged off of a flight. >> let's head outside right now take a live look out on this friday morning. going to be a little bit warmer today. 66 degrees already at 6:13. check in with tucker barnes. erin has got your commute too for your friday. it's all coming up right after the break. >> ♪
